How to Use Adaptive Cruise Control

February 21st, 2019 by

With the help of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), your Volkswagen vehicle will maintain a preset speed and distance from the car in front of you. When enabled, sensors can detect if the vehicle ahead of you speeds up or slows down, and make the proper adjustments to your car. Now available in many new Volkswagen models, ACC will provide you with additional reassurance along every drive through New Haven.

New Haven Area VW Drivers Can Turn on Adaptive Cruise Control With Ease

To turn on ACC, press the on/off button on your steering wheel. After activating the system, save your desired speed by pressing the “set” button and the speed will appear in the instrument cluster. ACC will then regulate the speed to maintain a comfortable following distance from the vehicle in front. To adjust the following distance to one of five positions, press the adaptive distance button. Immediately after, set the distance intervals by using the plus or minus buttons.
